Dirt Crew is a custom 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 dump truck monster truck owned by Badlands Racing out of Attica, Indiana. It is primarily driven by Jerry Beck, but has also been driven by various other drivers over the course of its career, including Tim Missentzis, Vern House, and, most recently, Marc McDonald. Since its debut in 2015, the truck has become a staple of various leagues, most notably the Toughest Monster Truck Tour and Monster Truck Throwdown, and currently competes alongside its teammate, Quad Chaos.

History

Dirt Crew was originally created in 2015 as the successor to Badlands Racing's previous truck, Park Patrol. The truck began competition later in the year under Jerry Beck. The following year, Dirt Crew began displaying the phrase "Get A Load of This!" atop of its dump bed.

Beginning in 2017, Tim Missentzis began driving the truck on occasion.

Trivia

  • When Monster Jam announced the creation of their own dump truck-themed monster truck, EarthShaker, during their 2017 Season Kickoff, Dirt Crew gained attention from fans, who claimed that EarthShaker’s design was directly stolen from that of Dirt Crew.
  • The truck is equipped with a horn via a switch located in the cab.
